Description:

The UC School-Leaver Scholarships 2022 application round is for new-to-UC students who will be beginning their first year of study towards an undergraduate degree at the University of Canterbury in 2022. The links in the list below will take you to the individual regulations for each scholarship, so you can find out more about the scholarship benefits, as well as eligibility criteria. You can also search each scholarship individually using the scholarship search engine keyword search for a brief summary of the scholarship. To begin your application, please click the "Apply" button to the right (will only become available once applications open).

While most of the available scholarships are targeted towards those who are currently completing University Entrance at a secondary school in Aotearoa New Zealand (or who are on a gap year, having completed UE in the previous year), there are some scholarships available which allow applicants who completed UE in previous years to still be eligible for consideration, so long as the applicant hasn't been enrolled in a degree programme at any tertiary institute. Please refer to the the individual scholarship listing (you can use a keyword search in the UC scholarships database) or the regulations governing the scholarship, for detailed information regarding eligibility criteria.

A number of scholarships are suitable for international applicants who are studying/have studied at a secondary school in Aotearoa New Zealand, and achieved University Entrance. Please refer to the individual scholarship listing, or the regulations governing the scholarship for more detailed information.
